Classification (Books); Law libraries


In the summer of 2001 440 surveys were sent to a variety of law libraries in Canada. 183 were completed for a response rate of about 42%. Of these 84 were KF Modified users and 92% of these indicated that they were satisfied with the classification system. The results demonstrated that the KF Modified user base is quite stable with only 4 libraries reporting that they had switched from KF modified to some other system. There are 7 libraries currently considering adopting the classification scheme in the future indicating that the number of KF modified users continues to grow. Generally the findings represent good news for the future of the classification scheme.
